Diane Feinstein, Oldest US Senator, to Run for Re-election
Oct 10, 2017, 00:24
Sen. Dianne Feinstein is running for re-election next year, a spokesperson for the California Democrat told CNN on Monday.
"I am running for reelection to the Senate", Feinstein, who would be 85 when sworn in for another six-year term, wrote on Twitter.
Feinstein, who was the mayor of San Francisco for a decade before her Senate career, has been among the most outspoken voices on issues like gun violence and torture during her long legislative tenure.
Both in California and on a national level, progressives have wanted the Democratic Party to align its platform toward the agenda set forth by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
Feinstein is one of eight serving members in the U.S. Senate in her 80s.
On Sunday, Feinstein hinted in a national television interview that she was likely to run again, telling NBC's "Meet the Press" that she was close to a formal decision. Dianne Feinstein will run for a fifth full term in 2018.
But the senior senator said twice on Sunday that no gun control legislation would have stopped the mass shooting. She is the top Democrat on the Senate judiciary committee.
Feinstein has taken a leading role in efforts against gun violence, sponsoring an assault weapons ban in the 1990s and more recently the proposed ban on the modification used in the Las Vegas shooting that allows a semiautomatic weapon to perform like an automatic. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said that if Republicans were willing to pass a bill banning bump stock devices - like those used by the Las Vegas hotel sniper - he would support the legislation, even if it was not accompanied by any other restrictions of weapons purchases.
The mere implication that Trump could be a "good president" drew the ire of state Senate president Kevin de León, whose recent two-day trip to Washington was seen as laying the groundwork for a potential Senate run.
